Samir Nazareth hails from Nagpur. The city is famous for oranges, but beyond that, it is the geographical center of India.

He has quit his job, and is spending months on the road, his aim to explore as much of the coastal regions as he can, on a limited budget.

Faces in the Crowd : Children at Patalpani

We noticed these children playing near the temple of Tantya Bhil at Patalpani...

It was a holiday, so they were home. They were kids of the local guard who lived behind the temple, and maintained it. They were too shy to speak, but thrilled when I clicked their photo. And, as I have often noticed, with kids and adults alike, even more thrilled to see their photo on my camera screen.
